Overview

This is a book about God.

Not just any God, but a God worth believing in.

It’s a book about wrestling with death and fear and doubt—and hoping to find something bigger.

It's a book about heaven. Often when we think of heaven, what comes to mind is escape. According to Medieval art and modern cartoons, “heaven” is about leaving this world. Heaven is about getting as far away from what we and others have broken as possible. Perhaps we think this world is too base, too painful, too irreparably shattered to fix so our only hope is to leave.

But this is a move of despair, and despair isn't healthy.

This is a book about hell. Sometimes we believe ridiculous ideas so long they no longer seem ridiculous. But we need to reimagine hell. The real God would not choose a world that could contains an everlasting torture chamber.

Most of all this is a book about Jesus. Not the Jesus we see in bad Christian art, but the Jesus who emerges from a dark corner of history and can’t help illuminating everything he touches. In this Jesus, we see a new kind of God. In this Jesus, we see a new future.
